Off-Beat Workout Music


#1

Hey all, we've got Rap threads, Rock threads, Heavy metal threads, let's try an off-beat music to workout to thread. The definitions are a little loose I guess. Here's some stuff I've worked out to in the past that wouldn't readily fall under the aforementioned genres:

From A. R. Rahman:

Some Christian dance from Andy Hunter:

Hevia (Spanish Bagpipe player):

That's all I have in my head right now. What's "off beat" that you've worked out to?


#2

DJ Promo - Pavo Hardstyle

the lyrics are pretty interesting

Spank Rock - Loose (contains boobies)

Peaches - Fuck the Pain Away

Spank Rock - Shake it til My Dick Turn Racist (Live)

i dont know if this stuff qualifies

i only worked out to the first song before.

It counts, some catchy beats there.


#5

Sometimes when I'm deadlifting, nothing can beat Ride of the Valkyries


#6

Also a big fan of the Chantays - Pipeline to get focused


#7

Electric Six- Dance Commander

Electric Six- Danger High voltage

I think that counts as off beat...


#8

A band called 'Ra'...duality may be their best album. They just released Black Sun and it seems promising. They're kind of mellow rock I guess...

Their best jam from duality is probably 'taken', other than the 'everything little thing she does is magic' cover, but here's another good one. I couldn't find taken on youtube.

Good song from Black Sun.

Bango
